Kate is a graduate student at Southern Connecticut State University seeking her master’s degree in Environmental Education. With a love for the outdoors, she spends much of her free time hiking, gardening, and camping.

Kate’s has always maintained a passion for both art and the environment. Beginning at a young age, Kate realized she had a knack and an enthusiasm for creating artwork. As a high school student she took many advanced art classes including the Uconn ECE AP Art course. Painting and drawing continue to be her favorite hobby. Kate’s interest in the environment began as a child who learned that the small stream in her backyard was actually the beginning of a much larger river connected to Long Island Sound, the Neck River. From this discovery grew her career in environmental studies and education.
As a Citizen’s Response Intern for the New Haven Department of Public Works, Kate has gained a great body of knowledge about sustainability in cities. She has learned a significant amount about the large scale function of not only waste removal, but also policy implementation within a municipality. Through the internship, she has noticed many sustainability issues that are rooted in a lack of public education of how to properly recycle. Kate plans to use her master’s degree to help educate people from all walks of life about the importance of sustainability.
